Sturz der Giganten. 2003. Oil on canvas. Verso with the artist's signet as well as dated and titled. 110 x 300 cm (43.3 x 118.1 in). In artist's frame. • Excellent document of how Bisky overcomes art-historic traditions. • Fascinating contrast between monumental format and neatly orchestarted physicalness. • One of the internationally sought-after large-size works from the 2000s • Bisky's very own interpretation of the classic theme of the "Fall of Giants" in the pictorial language of Socialist Realism.
PROVENANCE: Galerie Schulz, Berlin. Private collection Germany (acquired from aforementioned).
"I forge in falsely painted pictures the false pictures of my youth that promised false luck and a false belief in a false country on the wrong side" Norbert Bisky, quote after: Kunstwerkstatt Norbert Bisky, Munich et al 2007, rear of cover.
